“This year, our Pink17 conference is centered around the topic of leadership and driving business value” said Fatima Cabral, CEO, Pink Elephant. “We are thrilled to have Alison Levine headline our conference to challenge our attendees to think differently about leadership.

- Hard-Core Preparation - Sometimes it hurts
- Go Back, Jack, Do It Again - Why backward is often the right direction

- Bring It – You need you’re A-game, and then some
